Tomorrow on May 4, 2011 at 12:00 Noon ET, the US Mint will release the 2010 Mount Hoof National Park Quarter Three Coin Set. This product highlights the fifth release in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.
Each set includes an uncirculated Denver Mint coin, uncirculated Philadelphia Mint coin, and proof San Francisco Mint coin. The three Mount Hood Quarters are presented on a plastic card containing a brief description of the park and coin design, as well as a certificate of authenticity.
The Three Coin Sets are priced at $14.95 each. As mentioned in prior posts on this product type, the cost of acquiring the coins through these sets is significantly higher than the cost of acquiring them through other options. The coins are included in the full 2010 Proof Set and 2010 Mint Set, or the separate 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set and Uncirculated Set.
This product will be the final Three Coin Set released for the 2010-dated quarters. The product type got a late start last year, with the Hot Springs set issued in mid-November 2010. With last year’s designs all released, the US Mint will begin issuing Three Coin Sets for the 2011-dated quarters.
Looking ahead, the US Mint will issue sets for the Gettysburg, Glacier, and Olympic National Park Coins on the same date July 27, 2011. After that, the three coin set for Vicksburg will be released on October 19, 2011, and Chickasaw on December 20, 2011.
